be. the sample before you are samples, the first one is what voters requested that the independent controller city service auditor do for parks. you can see it simplified to one page with parks that are clean and tide y and green, and those starting from the left, there were a lot of parks in disrepair when this started in '05, '06. but parks have really improved and become more clean and usable. that's a nice report card style. but the report card on streets and street cleanliness and graffiti and trash receptacles and trees is a little more detailed and quantitative. but it shows a multi-year trend and summarizes in one page if we wanted to see what the status and health and cleanliness of streets and sidewalks would be. these are both independent score cards, report cards that the controller's office is doing, the city services auditor the board asked them to do. taking that same theme, the city services advisory of the sfpuc thought we might want to consider that as a way to synthesize and distill it into a report card to rate payers on how we're doing. so, what i've done here

a complicated forecast. i'll go through it step by step in a few minutes but first we will send it live to ava marie in ocean city. the storm is 500 miles from you but the tropical storm-force winds extend out 400 and 500 files from the center. >> we are getting winds up to 35 miles per hour right now and we are expecting those to increase throughout the day and increase tomorrow as sandy gets close to the eastern shore. we are expecting it to stay off the coast of ocean city and maybe make landfall in new jersey but the concern is that the wind field is so large, even in ocean city, we will get strong winds and they will move to baltimore. eight to 14-foot waves expected throughout the day today but the surge has receded a little bit. we hit high tide closer to 7:00 a.m. and now the weavds are back a little more. you can see what's left of the sea foam, that's how far the waves were out earlier on, now they're closer to the sea. they will increase this evening at the inlet closer to 8:00 p.m. and again tomorrow morning with the storm surge could be up to four feet. we'll continue to bring you
